Ravenshire Halloween Village Sneak Peek

PP Autumn Shadow DR outside

As promised, this week I will present you with several more sneak peeks of my upcoming Halloween Village open house where each room is decorated in a different autumnal style with corresponding window displays.  Today, I am featuring Park Place Autumn Shadows Dining Room collection (previously released at HGE and now available at the main store), Finishing Touches Pumpkin Candles and Autumn Wreath, Thaino Designs spooky sweet Halloween outdoor decor, and Aphrodite Shop Seven Sins wine (@ the Cosmo Sales Room event). Notable in the dining room is the Frank Lloyd Wright inspired stained glass inlay china cabinet, buffet table, and matching chandeliers.  The warmth of the crackling fire reflects the rich tones of the elegant mahogany round dining table.  Also included in the collection are charming painted pumpkin arrangements, greeting guests in the windows.  I completed the room with Finishing Touches new autumn release metal pumpkin candles, available in 6 versions.  All shoppe windows are embellished with different decorative Halloween items from pumpkins to haunted houses, and each window sports a unique Finishing Touches wreath.  The outside walkway is guarded by adorable Thaino Designs Witches in Training and Flower Cauldron.  Attached to this Roawenwood Ravenshire Village (single shoppe) is a little porch which I made into a farm to table store for the Halloween Village, with overflowing baskets of apples, squash, and zucchini.  Pumpkins, hay bales, a porch swing and bobbing for apples finish the scene.  Hope this inspires you to create a warm and inviting space for the upcoming holiday season.  Let’s Get Decorating!

Lakehouse Living | The Collage

Sitting Area

A new round of The Collage is opening on Monday, June 23rd with designs ranging from shabby chic, to classic, to Victorian.  The designer’s new releases will be available at the new Collage location, now open year round.  Today’s inspiration for my great room are the soft peaches and muted sea greens from the Cozy Essentials Lakehouse Collection dining set.  I imagined radiant metallic reflects of translucent seashells that washed up on shore.  I create two separate spaces in my Trompe Loeil Willoughby Lakehouse, a sitting area and dining room.  To enhance the soft blush tone from the Cozy Essential rug in the living room, I used Dreamscapes Art Gallery Olivia rose painted shelf and table.  I finished the sitting room with Spargel & Shines Home Annie Antique Travel Set, Dreamscapes Milla leather armchair and couch (May/June release), and some Cozy Essentials plants, ferns and decorative accessories.

Dinner Table & Sweets

To divide the space, I utilized Cozy’s Lakehouse Collection Entrance Table with two-sided photo frame, filled with close up pictures of seashells. The dining and buffet tables are filled with sweet treat courtesy of Aphrodite Shop, Death by Chocolate new release (not part of The Collage).  Cozy Essential’s Lakehouse Dining Collection includes; mahogany dining table, 6 sea green chairs, peach rug, buffet table, candle display, lamps, chandelier, mirror, clock, entry table with texture change picture frames, ferns, potted plants, fireplace {not shown} and decorative accessories.  The dining room set is a nice addition to any home.  Taxi please…
